I've noticed dollarama has started stocking elmers foam board, it used to stock readi board foam board. The price is the same, just wondering what your thoughts are of elmers foam compared to readi board. Will I have any problems working with elmers? Is it better? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Yea I noticed that a few months ago. My first planes were made with the readi board, new planes are made with the elmers one. I've noticed that the elmers brand is a lot stiffer and the paper is slightly harder to take off. It terms of workability, I don't find any difference.

I'm also going to be testing the strength of the elmers board when minwax is applied.
